Description
"The great emotional scope revealed by a craft couched in simplicity is an accomplishment not easily measured." Those words of the great jazz pianist Bill Evans come to mind when listening to this anthology marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ben Webster. Flaubert wrote of "le mot juste," but one might propose analogously that Webster was the exemplar of "le note juste," caressing the melody with a breathy, intimate tone all his own.

"When he took part in the series of small-group dates with Art Tatum, he refused to be intimidated by the pianist's intricate flourishes, simply delivering majestic solos in 'My One and Only Love,' 'All the Things You Are,' and 'Have You Met Miss Jones?'… The two live tracks, 'Caravan' and 'Georgia on My Mind' taken from At the Renaissance, also find Webster in an inspired mood…. But the most overlooked material is from his meeting with Austrian pianist Joe Zawinul … which is highlighted by the richly textured 'Travelin' Light.' "—All Music Guide
